One of the main storylines coming out of the game was Tom Brady‘s actions on the field. The legendary quarterback was visibly frustrated all night, and who could blame him? His young receivers were dropping passes left and right, something Brady just isn’t accustomed to. But we all knew this year was going to be different, given the fact that the Patriots are currently down their top three pass-catchers from a season ago.
Brady admitted after the game that he may have gone a little too far with his frustrations:
“I’ve got to do a better job with my body language. I can definitely improve on that. I wouldn’t say that’s a real strong point of mine right now.”
The QB is right, it’s not a real strong point of his right now. But when has it ever been? The guy always seems to be mad as heck out there and never satisfied. That’s what makes him great. Sure, maybe he’s not acting like a true professional. But when you make it to five Super Bowls, you get pass on things like on-field body language.
Even if Brady can tone down his actions on the field, he’ll still always have that 1,000-yard stare. That’s his signature look. Some may call it creepy, but I just view it as a display of his intense competitive nature.
